I understand he isn't a speedy guy. That's fine.

What's not fine is hugging the bag when the third basemand is 30 feet
away, so when there's a wild pitch you can't score.

If we lose by one run its his fault.

But my situation is not entirely desperate. The Flatlanders are, I
have learned, edible, with a taste something like very moist smoked
salmon. It takes quite a few of them to make a meal, but they are
plentiful, and they are easy to catch. - Rudy Rucker
